Engineering work is taking place between Faversham and Dover Priory on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, closing some lines.

As a result, the 22:10 London Victoria to Dover Priory service will run as booked to Faversham, and will then be diverted by an alternative route to Dover Priory via Ramsgate.

Two replacement bus services will run:

  • A replacement bus will run from Faversham to Canterbury East and Dover Priory only.
  • A replacement bus will run from Faversham to Kearsney, calling at all stations.
